Buying and selling is the giving and receiving of something in exchange for an agreed upon price. This includes understanding the concept of consumer awareness and entrepreneurial spirit.
Nowadays, E-commerce is becoming more and more widespread and is gaining a competitive edge over traditional commerce. If you want to shop or launch your company online, the Online Buying and Selling Badge will help you become a smart shopper, who makes informed purchases and avoids nasty surprises. It will help you to understand the entrepreneurial mindset, fostering it in yourself and others appropriately.
In the purchasing and selling silver badge we will look at how these themes can be incorporated into the classroom. Together, we will explore how we can address purchasing and selling in the classroom, including: purchasing, selling, media subscriptions and virtual merchandise as well as the importance of having an entrepreneurial spirit.
By now, you should have a better understanding of what is online purchasing and selling. As an educator, it is now time to show us how you are incorporating these elements of digital citizenship into your teaching repertoire. The gold level badge is how you (and us!) can ensure that these important concepts are being addressed.
